The U18’s are through to the final of the North Munster league thanks to a 36-0 win over Young Munsters. Played in perfect conditions on Sunday Bruff didn’t have it all their own way as the scoreline may suggest. Young Munsters dominated territory and possession for long periods of the game but Bruff’s hard tackling and well organised defence saw them keeping the visitors scoreless for the 80 minutes.

Bruff lead 17-0 at half time thanks to 3 first half trys and a conversion. Kevin McManus scored the first try of the game thanks to some good hands from Jack O Grady on the left wing after 5 minutes. Sean Hartigan was next to score from a well worked maul from a 5 metre line out. Jack O Grady who set up the first try got a try of his own 5 minutes later after a good spell of Bruff pressure, number 8 Dylan Reeves-Wasik popped up in the centre of the field and again some crisp handling from the big back rower set O Grady away to touch down to the right of the posts which was converted by McManus.

Bruff showed the strength of their bench in the second half with 3 further trys coming from Substitutes. Again Munsters dominated the early play but never managed to threaten the Bruff line. Mattew O Dea added the 4th try for Bruff mid-way through the second half before Aaron Daly helped himself to a brace before the full time whistle. All 3 second half trys were similar in that Bruff retained possession well and went through the phases before spreading the ball through the hands. Kevin McManus converted 2 of the trys to make it 36-0 in the end

Bruff can now look forward to a final meeting with Newcastle West next weekend. Details TBC during the week.
